Glad I found all of you! I was on the old message board! Some of you know we lost our sweet Bonnie August 11. I miss her SO much but am doing a bit better now. She'd been acting strange and then the panting started. I thought it was just because it's so hot but it was constant. So,I kind of knew what was wrong. I was right. With a heavy heart,I took her to the dr. and pancreatitis had attacked her heart and it was failing. She also had diabetes,cushings disease and had started developing warts alll over her body which seemed to be so new. I had only noticed one.
Of course,they wanted to try to save her but it wasn't for sure she'd even make it through the treatment plus it was so cost prohibitive.
She was 12 years old and I feel like another piece of my heart has been ripped out. So,I decided to end her suffering. They told me,as upset as I was,it would be best not to go back with her. They wrere so loving with her and gave me time to spend with her before they took her. She was having such a hard time breathing I went and got them and said my final good-byes. The vet tech was giving her kisses as she took her back so I know they were loving to her. I still get tears in my eyes and Goober looked for her for awhile but has decided to play with out big cat,Dat,who is so good with him. I almost went back with her but remember how it tore my heart out to go back with Mitzie and they told me they were doing it right then. I asked them to please not put her in a cage and wait til they could get to her and they said they never do.
So,my swet girl is with Boo and Mitzie and I know they are happy to see her. My heart sure hurts though. I coudn't get a picture to post. She was so beautiful.
You can see her below I hope.
